Apple has officially renamed Rendezvous, Bonjour, keeping with the French phraseology.

The company has updated all the branding on its Website to reflect the name change.

The name change is the result of a copyright battle with Tibco Software.

Tibco has been using the term Rendezvous since 1994 to describe its software that allows applications to share data over networks. Similarly, Apple's Rendezvous – now Bonjour – enables the creation of an instant network of computers and devices, such as printers.
